Some foods smell delicious when they are being cooked, but most of the time we want to get rid of the smells of the kitchen fast. Cooker hoods are common in most kitchens nowadays, but there are quite a few options to choose from. Here's a run down of the things you need to look out for when selecting a new one.
Replace or Remodel?
Are you replacing an old cooker hood, or buying one for a new kitchen? Although they are not thought of that much, most cooker hoods are very visible in the room, so make sure you get one that matches the rest of the kitchen.
Go with the Flow
Without doubt the best type of cooker hood is a simple extractor unit that completely removes all nasty smells from the room. However, sometimes due to space or restrictions with the installation you may have to use a recirculating unit. These units use charcoal filters to clean and recycle the air.
Rings of Fire
Do you have a huge 5 burner range cooker, with multiple pots always bubbling away? Or do you just make do with two small electric rings? The bigger the hob the harder the hood must work so make sure you choose one that is big enough for your kitchen.
